I honestly still want this blouse every time I watch this episode. The abstract bows play off of the pussy bow collar in such a fun way. And who doesn't like bows?
This dress! I used to go to the Marc by Marc Jacobs store and just stare at this dress. It combines retro and classic style (read: white eyelet, halter neckline) with modern elements (bandage style design, body-hugging fit) in a way that both Marc Jacobs and Blair Waldorf perfected. Plus, there's another bow!
Capes seem like such a Grace Kelly type item, something classic and ladylike but altogether impractical for everyday life. Somehow, though, Blair made me want one. Aside from her ability to set trends, this color blocked look is very typically Blair. I used to find myself wearing brightly colored tights with shift dresses and flats all winter long when Gossip Girl first came out because of outfits like this, as well as this one:
Seriously, no one looked this cute at my high school! I wish they had though. I would have had so much more fun!
Last but not least, this dress. It helps that I loved this episode, but it also perfectly epitomizes Blair Waldorf style. The dress is a modern take on something entirely feminine with a slightly retro silhouette (it's kind of 1920's/Great Gatsby-ish, right?). Plus, there's a headband. And it wouldn't be the Queen Bee without her crowning head band, right?
Until next time,
